mobile device management software

Mobile device management software is any application that gives IT administrators a way to troubleshoot and manage employee mobile devices remotely. Mobile device management software typically allows distribution of applications, data and configuration settings and patches for devices such as tablets, mobile phones, smartphones and other mobile computing devices.

The advantage of mobile device management software is that IT administrators can manage employee mobile devices without having to troubleshoot the device in person. Mobile device management software is increasingly important as more and more employees use mobile devices for work purposes.
